Post op liposuction treatment can improve the recovery process to prevent scar tissue build up and lessen the chance of dimples and dents. A post- operatory treatment reduces swelling, bruising, the appearance of scar tissue, and uneven contours. Accelerating the healing time during this critical recovery phase.
Some patients experience post-surgery accumulation of liquid or tissues beneath the skin that can harden. The resulting fibrosis can cause bruising or soreness. Lymphatic treatment is a type of gentle treatment that encourages blood flow and lymph drainage to help relieve this fibrosis. Once the lymph is drained, the reabsorption process begins. The waste tissue will be carried back toward the heart and, ultimately, naturally removed from the body. Lymphatic treatment is a very safe and effective way to speed the healing process and improve comfort post-surgery.
The lymphatic system flushes fluid through the body to help in the detoxifying process. Post-surgery, your lymphatic system may be damaged or backed up. A certified lymphatic treatment therapist can help facilitate the movement of fluid, which will relieve pressure. This allows the lymphatic system to be at the height of effectiveness when a patient needs it most. For most patients, this treatment can speed recovery, ease discomfort, help reduce stress and anxiety, and prevent and break up scar tissue. These types of treatments have many other benefits, too, including detoxification, pain alleviation, and relaxation. Your immune system will also benefit from these treatments, which is crucial during a post-operative time of healing.
The treatment has to be a lymphatic treatment to help with the fibrosis. Other treatments (particularly deep tissue treatments) could actually hurt you as you’re trying to heal, so it is crucial to choose a treatment therapist who has the correct certifications for lymphatic treatment. Some people do their own lymphatic treatments post-surgery, but this can be very labor intensive. We do lymphatic treatments in-house at Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics, so no legwork is needed on your part. Your only job is to rest and heal.

After your lymphatic treatment, it is important to drink plenty of water and get up and move around a bit. Most patients feel very relaxed after their treatments and might be tempted to lie down, but a bit of movement will increase blood flow and speed up the healing process. You’ll need to follow your doctor’s specific recommendations for exercise and activity.
